Imagine Dragons yells its "Battle Cry"
Who knew that "Transformers" would nearly transform the career of Imagine Dragons?
Sure, the band has been touring in support of its debut album, "Night Visions," for the last two years. Then the phone rang and a guy named Michael Bay was on the other end, asking if Imagine Dragons would compose a song for the latest installment of his alien-robot movie franchise. You can bet they weren't about to turn him down.
The next step involved Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds sitting down with Bay to watch parts of the film. That bore the idea for the original song, "Battle Cry," which the band wrote along with composers Steve Jablonsky and Hans Zimmer. The end result was a song that builds from delicate strings into a swelling, drum-filled chorus.
"Battle Cry" was released as a one-off single on June 2, several weeks before "Transformers: Age of Extinction" hit theaters in the U.S. Since then the band has played to the deafening roars of thousands of fans (old and new), including a headline slot at Dover, Delaware's Firefly Music Festival. Their single "Radioactive" also just ended an astonishing 87-week run on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
For fans seeking new music from Imagine Dragons, you won't have to wait long. The quartet recently revealed they have more than 100 demos in their possession, and have been writing since "Night Visions" came out two years ago. They also purchased a house in Las Vegas that has been renovated into a studio, cutting down on future expenses incurred in the recording process.
Catch Imagine Dragons on the road as they headline the upcoming Target All-Star Concert July 12, three days before the MLB All-Star Game in Minneapolis.
About Imagine Dragons
Imagine going through a baptism by fire scenario in which you learn to deal with major media exposure almost overnight. That's the story of the Imagine Dragons, an alternative-rock-band-turned-overnight-sensation following the release of their debut studio album "Night Visions" in September 2012.
What follows goes something like this: the media circus known as the late night talk show circuit ("Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "The Tonight Show"), sensational praise from magazines (Billboard and Rolling Stone) and a world tour that blazed a trail through the United States, Canada and many countries in Europe (where virtually every show was a sellout).
Though the band officially got its start in 2008, has released seven EPs and is on its fourth tour, Imagine Dragons is still very much in its infancy. Sure, "Night Visions" peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 83,000 copies in its first week. Yes, it reached #1 on the Alternative and Rock Album charts, not to mention climbing into the top ten in eight other countries. But the bottom line is that these guys were just named one of Billboard's "Brightest New Stars" of 2012, and the best is undoubtedly yet to come.
Imagine Dragons recently performed their single "It's Time" on "The Late Show with David Letterman" and is booked for "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on July 26, 2013. They are scheduled to perform at summer festivals including Yahoo! On the Road Festival, Hangout Music Festival, Summerfest, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, and so many more.
